COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The classic Bitburger - a mature and most agreeable beer - is brewed with the best of ingredients in the same traditional way it has been for many, many years. The result is delicately tart and pleasantly bitter - with a strong hop taste.

Very smooth honey/buttery flavor. On tap this is a good beer. Out of the bottle this is just another skunked German pils. Typical golden color, typical white head. Nothing really makes this beer stand out.

Bitburger is a classic German Pilsener style lager. This is a bottom fermented Vollbier (full beer, or full-bodied beer with 11-14% original wort), having approximately 4.8% alcohol by volume. This is a finely crafted beer with a wonderful bitter Pils taste. This beer pours with a lively head and is very bubbly, having a high degree of carbonates that push a fragrant and flowery hops scent to the surface of your glass. The finish is a little yeasty and sweet. Serve this Pils at 7-9ºC (45ºF).

clear, pale golden colour, head disappears quickly, low hop aroma with notes of solvant, oily, moderate maltiness, some bitterness in the finish - under average

This is where it’s at right here. This is my favorite German brew. So smooth and a very pleasant aftertaste unlike other German brews.

A good beer, but nothing special. I am not much of a Pilsner fan, so it is hard for me to rate any beer of this style highly.

Dragonblaze99 (354) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2002
Pleasantly sharp hoppy aroma. Opens with a sharp hoppy bitterness, the middle is malty with some sweetishness. Finishes off very bitter. Not bad as German pilsensers go.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2003 Lightly malty, strong dry bitter finish with hint of herbal spice. Excellent German pilsner style.

This is a pretty good German pilsner, no question about it. After a few, I noticed a little bitter aftertaste though, but not enough for me to complain!
